Watch: Keira Knightley, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston & More Recreate Classic Movie Scenes In Vanity Fair Short Film

We’re in the last stretch of awards season, which means the glitz and glamor of the industry is going to be even more blinding than usual. But Vanity Fair has taken a different approach, choosing to shine a spotlight on British stars who have been making waves in Hollywood over the last few years. The result is a short film told in three parts — “Preparing For War,” “Coming To America,” and “Victory Is Assured” — that’s a cheeky look at the stars from abroad who have made an impression stateside.

Featuring over 40 actors from merry old England — including Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Caine, Orlando Bloom, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Dominic Monaghan, and more — it finds the actors taking on famous scenes from classic films. Knightley recreates Meg Ryan‘s fake orgasm from “When Harry Met Sally,” Monaghan delivers the “I coulda been a contender” speech from “On The Waterfront,” while Jeremy Irons drops an iconic line from “Die Hard.”

Check out the triptych below, directed by Jason Bell.
